The Names of Love

Rated R 84 minutes 2011

Actress Sara Forestier lights up the screen in more ways than one in this zany romantic comedy about a young, free-spirited French-Algerian woman named Baya and her talkative, demonstrative love affair with a conservative ornithologist named Arthur (Jacques Gamblin). Baya�s politically pointed antics take on a whole new meaning one afternoon when, in her haste to run errands, she forgets her clothes and ambles down a street naked. That�s the exclamation point in director Michel Leclerc�s energetically urbane comedy of manners, which we�re not surprised to learn that he and screenwriter Baya Kasmi intended as a tribute to Woody Allen�s Annie Hall. Leclerc and Kasmi�s dialogue is just as bracing as Forestier�s full-frontal display (100 min.)
